First time flyer... Not bad, I like looking down


Woke up early (4:30 Texas time, 2:30 Cali Time) to head from Wellington to Austin, bout 7 hr drive

Setting up the Art Gallery is always fun, we always need last minute supplies and always are waiting on some artists (artists will be artists)

Here's Jeff Norwell & Flat Top Bob putting up Norwell's pieces..

The list of guys we were waiting for

Looking down..

Steve gave us a label maker to make some labels for the Art Gallery and of course we fooled around with it... haha
